Board Meeting Officer Changes
« on: August 12, 2014, 09:57:40 AM »
Good Morning Everyone!

As many of you know, we held elections for our Board Members during the annual meeting a few weeks ago. FamiLAB would like to congratulate both John Lamp and Lance Hudson as our newly elected directors. We also had Willa Riggins decide to step down as FamiLAB President and resign her position on the board to focus on her new baby (Yay Famibaby?) after her dedicated and amazing service of more than two years - She will still be attending the lab and making and doing awesome things.

With that, some roles needed to be shifted, and as per our bylaws, we do not elect for positions, but spots on the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors then internally decides among themselves who they feel on the team is best suited for each position. No one position has any more power than the others; they are all titles that just help to more clearly define roles and responsibilities of each member.

As a board, we have voted to make the following changes to the structure of the Board of Directors.

President:      Michael King
Vice President: Lance Hudson
Secretary:      Matt Armstrong
Treasurer:      Jamie Szafran
Facilities:     David Sikes
Communications: John Lamp
Director:       Conner Brooks

These roles were all previously defined, but re-defined on Sunday night at the board meeting at the lab in order to best fit the needs of our group and to support the ongoing mission of FamiLAB. Below is our first-draft list of each board member's responsibilities - These are sure to shuffle a bit as we move forward and are able to fully recognize the talents and strengths of our newest elected members. This list is supposed to be a "Do or Delegate" task list, not that each board member is personally required to see each task to their full extent.
